After suffering an 11-point loss at Lynn English last Monday night, the Revere High School girls’ basketball team recovered nicely with a win over Malden Wednesday to reach 10 wins for the season and clinch a postseason berth.
The victory improved Revere’s record to 10-6 overall with four regular-season games left. The Patriots defeated Chelsea 50-40 last week before dropping a 56-45 decision to the Lynn English Bulldogs on Monday.
In the Lynn English game, Haley Belloise and Skyla DeSimone topped the score sheet for the Patriots. Belloise netted 15 points and DeSimone added 14. Revere has three of its final four regular-season games at home, beginning with a clash against Waltham Friday night (scheduled 6 p.m. tipoff).
Revere boys get back over .500
The Revere High School boys’ basketball team saw its record drop below .500 before reversing the trend and winning two straight to improve to 7-6 overall. With seven games left in the regular season, the Patriots have their sights set on earning a postseason berth.
A memorable win over Hamilton-Wenham at TD Garden in Boston last Saturday got the Patriots back on track. The game was part of the Andrew James Lawson Foundation Jamboree. Domenic Boudreau was the top story offensively for the Patriots as he canned 20 points in a 45-40 win over the Generals.
Once again, Revere’s defense proved to be a key factor by holding the Generals to just 40 points. Offensively, the Patriots had no other players in double figures. Hamza Ghoul collected eight points and Jack D’Ambrosio added seven. Boudreau drilled two shots from beyond the three-point line.
The Patriots trailed 20-17 at halftime but went on to outscore Hamilton-Wenham, 15-8, in the third quarter to grab a four-point lead entering the final period. They added a point to the margin by producing a 13-12 advantage in the fourth to capture the win.
Revere followed up the TD Garden victory with another low-scoring 48-37 triumph over Malden on Tuesday. Double figure scorers were Alejandro Hincapie with 12 points and 11 boards, James Clauto with 10 points and nine rebounds and D’Ambrosio with 10 rebounds and five assists.
The Patriots helped their cause by hitting seven times from the three-point stripe. Hincapie connected for three of the three-point field goals and Clauto added two. Revere hosted Somerville on Thursday (after press deadline) and play at Medford Saturday afternoon.
